An anniversary that ought not to be "celebrated"
November 4th will mark the thirtieth anniversary of the flood that ravaged Florence in 1966. Like every anniversary, this one is going to be celebrated too. A great many events, such as conventions, meetings, concerts and exhibitions, are being organized. We have published an exhibition of photographs, interviews and accounts on these pages as well. However none of these things are meant to actually "celebrate" the event. How can we celebrate such a dramatic event as this, which was to cause deaths, destroy works of art, leave fifty thousand families homeless, wipe out six thousand shops out of ten, and reveal the impotence and ineptitude of the governmental apparatus. These pages are "to remember".
